Days to Remember, Awash in Beauty, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello! I'm so happy to share this card with you today. I had gotten a packet from Terri at one of her Stamp a Stacks and I had set it aside to put together at a later time. Well, it's a later time and here's the finished card (finally!). 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. On top of that is a 4-1/4" x 3" piece of Granny Apple Green card stock and Basic White layer. The Basic White piece measures 4-1/8" x 2-7/8".  The piece was textured using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder. Terri had already textured, nice, huh? The piece was centered on the card base and set in place using Dimensionals.

The flower is from the "Days to Remember" 12" x 12" package of Designer Series Paper (DSP). I did have to fussy cut that myself. Dimensionals were added to the back. 

The leaves were punched using the "Bough" punch and Granny Apple Green card stock. I set the leaves on the textured piece and then set the flower on top. The Dimensionals on the flower will hold the leaf piece in place. 

The words are from the "Days to Remember" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. And then they were punched out using the "Dual Oval" punch. The scalloped oval was also punched from the same punch and a scrap of Granny Apple Green card stock. I taped the ovals together, added Dimensionals on the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card. 

A fun gem cut embellishment was added to the center of the flower and the card was done.

This was a fun card to make and a super easy layout. I can see myself using this layout for other cards. Can you see the cute little turtle or bunny from the "Playing in the Rain" set in place of the flower and leaves?  Lots of options for that space!

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's birthday card,
